Things are about to get bloody. William Shatner narrates the trailer for the new animated film “To Your Last Death,” and his calm and alluring tone of voice will be of just a little comfort for the hyper-violence on display.
The trailer for the “Archer”-style animated film features some twisted, “Saw”-style death traps, brutal attacks with swords, axes, chainsaws and syringes, a woman falling to her death in a spike-filled pit, and even a guy walking around with his brain sliced open.
“Hell is empty, and the devils are here,” Shatner says in a whisper in the trailer.
“To Your Last Death” is a time-jumping revenge thriller that resembles what would be a particularly nasty episode of “Archer,” and it fittingly made its world premiere on Aug. 23 at Frightfest UK.
The story centers on a troubled social-justice activist named Miriam DeKalb (Dani Lennon) who survives a revenge scheme by their cruel, billionaire father in which her sister and two brothers are brutally killed. But while in the hospital, Miriam is visited by a mysterious entity known as the Gamester (Morena Baccarin), who offers her the chance to go back in time and try again in order to save her siblings. Now Miriam must relive the most horrific night of her life all over again, only this time armed with the knowledge of what’s about to happen to her to give her a fighting chance.
The twist however is that the Gamester is using Miriam as a pawn in a bizarre, interstellar gambling match, and her real motives are unclear.
Director Jason Axinn is known for his work on the series “Inside the Legend” and the animated series Starpocalypse.” Jim Cirile and Tanya Klein wrote the screenplay, and Coverage Ink Films produced.
The voice cast also includes Ray Wise, Bill Moseley, Florence Hartigan, Ben Siemon, Damien Haas, Bill Millsap, Steve Geiger and Tom Lommel.
“To Your Last Death” is also having its U.S. premiere Wednesday at the Big Apple Film Festival in New York. Watch the gruesome first trailer for the movie, exclusively obtained by TheWrap, above.
